Join us for the opening of Maryam Jafri's first solo exhibition in Denmark in more than ten years: No Lithium, No Work at Kunsthal Aarhus.
The exhibition presents newly commissioned works alongside a selection of her previous artworks. An important focus of the exhibition is the importance of lithium today; how it is used as both a treatment for mood disorders, and as the main component in rechargeable batteries, which power electric cars, smartphones, laptops, and solar panels. In referring to lithium’s dual function and characteristics, Jafri focuses on the three interlocking forms of labour in the modern world – creative, reproductive, and industrial – while simultaneously investigating mental health and consumer culture through a global lens.
